Fun workplace
Relaxed environment meant to cater to the sport. Just snowboarders trying to share their love of the sport with the world, some managers handle the job better than others

Fun place to work and get a foot in the door for any college student
I loved working here; however, they do not have any openings in the field(s) I wish to pursue within my home state. Therefore, I will be looking elsewhere.

Sell everything like a pro
Sell the merchandise and boards. Know your product knowledge. Be perfect with inventory. Don't be offensive on social media. Be stoked to ride with Burton.

Chill but sometimes busy work place
its a snowboard shop ran by snowboarders and some non snowboarders. Everyone is pretty relaxed for the most part. Its a good company to work for as a part time job.

Enjoyable workplace with great benefits
I learned a lot about snowboarding gear, and customer service along with taking phone calls and using the register. The workplace was fun and helpful through learning and growing as a sales associate. A typical day was cleaning the sales floor through the day along with answering customers questions and selling them gear. The most enjoyable part was all the great benefits and meeting people with the same passion as me, snowboarding.

Apply somewhere else
If you're a current student, they will absolutely take advantage of you with no hope to be brought on full time with the company, but stick and carrot

Great place to work
I loved working at Burton due to its employees. Great people, and a very comfortable environment. Another great aspect of Burton were it's customers base, they all shared the same passion for snowboarding and that made working there easier.

"Design Unlikely Futures"
Burton is a really fun company to work for. Retail store managers are given plenty of autonomy and encouraged to execute goals how they feel best fits the situation. The most enjoyable part of this job is the people, the culture, and a common passion for snowboarding. However, with limited opportunities to advance outside of retail management, employees eventually burn out.
Pros
Company culture
Cons
Limited opportunities to advance

Fun but they do not like to pay you
There is no compensation given for those that excel at the position of retail associate. Therefore, peers who do not pull their own weight etc are going to be given the same wage as someone who is constantly meeting sales goals and going above and beyond to provide exceptional customer service.
Pros
Great employee discount
Cons
Can't afford to live

Laid back, fun loving culture.
The work environment is very enjoyable. Low salary for a NYC Flagship retail management position. Great benefits and great company culture. "We work like we ride."

Fun and rewarding but stressful.
Burton is a great place to work if you love Vermont or are used to the east coast lifestyle.
It can be quite stressful and demanding, but the reward and joy of creating product cannot be understated.

Work Hard Play Hard Mentality
The organization thrives as its employees are driven, passionate, and and professional. The employees embody the mission and goal of the organization in the sense that they strive, and are, the best at what they do. The perk of having your dog at work and being able to hit the slopes during a powder day is an added bonus!

Great Workplace
Burton is a great place to work with an even better company culture. Its not every company that you receive a hand signed card along with cash from the founder and CEO.

Fun workplace that allows dogs
Fun gig for anyone looking to work retail. Cool employees that genuinely enjoy talking about their products and experiences. Not a whole lot of opportunity for growth unless you are an aspiring retail store branch manager. No room for feedback from employees about products that should be sold at stores.
Pros
Cheap gear, fitness/resort pass/lift ticket reimbursement, Pto
Cons
One day off at a time, late mornings with late evenings.

Senior management is another story.
